Once upon a time, it was just another factory. Today, it’s the biggest hive of innovation and entrepreneurship in Sri Lanka. Across it’s sprawling 16 acres, you’ll find the heavy weight juggernauts of the IT industry to it’s young fledging start-ups. All of them solving problems and delivering world class solutions in Sri Lanka. This is a place called Orion City.
Launched in 2009, the goal of Orion City was to provide the office spaces needed by businesses that met international standards. Four years later, one can say that Orion City has successfully accomplished this goal. For proof one only needs to glance at the list of tenants and they shall see names like: Virtusa, Pearson, WNS and Sri Lankan Airlines.
With all these companies together, Orion City has 6000 people working across a space of 550,000 square feet. Now what happens when you inject $70 million into this equation? Well, things are only going to get bigger and a lot better.
Apart from being Sri Lanka’s first IT Park, Orion City has now decided to test the water in a new type of development.
Recently, Orion Development, the owners of Orion City made a rather exciting announcement; work on the next stage of Orion City had begun. What is this next stage you ask? They call it Orion Towers. A 3 million square foot minicity.
This mini-city is by far the most ambitious undertaking under the greater developmental master plan of the Orion City IT Park. Envisioning a one-stop hub for innovation and collaboration in a space custom designed for business and personal needs, those privileged to be located at Orion Towers will gain access to gymnasiums, retail malls, dining options, and hospitality services. Fancy a bit of shopping and also some healthy living? A boutique hotel and green eco-decks will also occupy the approximately 350,000 square feet of rentable area in the 22-floor building.
Located on Baseline Road, Colombo 09, Orion Towers is almost a hop, a skip and a jump (well maybe several of those) to the busy metropolitan of the country’s commercial capital. Drawing inspiration from the cosmos, the Orion Towers reflect Orion’s belt, with three towers at an awe-inspiring height of 110 meters above the Colombo skyline, redefining the norms for IT infrastructure in Sri Lanka.
CEO of Orion Development Jeevan Gnanam explained how the company’s vision for Orion Towers is very future-forward. With the constant strive to be the go-to provider of infrastructure for commercial purposes, the company has indeed met with success because they believe in pushing the boundaries to ensure that their services are the best in the industry.
Orion City was recently awarded a LEED Silver certification, with recognition for best in class building practices and strategies. The company will target a LEED Gold certification with Orion Towers, with its first phase slated for completion in 2017.
